I have a regular monthly play date day with my sibling. We live in the very same residence however we do not really reach invest much time with each other, so we began this play day aspect of 2 months back. We pursue breakfast or lunch and also conversation for 2-3 hrs with no disturbances. (Though on this event, I was fairly sidetracked as I was hectic taking several images of food as it was showing up. * guilty * … Probably we need to most likely to a non-Korean restaurant following time to invest actual top quality time together.:-RRB-)
A couple of weeks back on our play date day, we made a decision to visit a Korean restaurant in the heart of Brisbane CBD. I really did not have any kind of certain food that I craved for as I have actually been cooking and also eating Korean food for the majority of the dishes because I returned to my blog writing once more, however my sibling claimed she wished to consume Sundubu Jjigae (Soft Tofu Stew). While each restaurant could market the very same food, they all have various toughness in various food. According to my sibling (that commonly sees numerous Korean dining establishments below), soup & & stew is best atMaru So off we went. While Maru’s been around for a number of years, this was my initial visit. It was after half previous one, so it had not been as hectic as maybe, however still tables were fairly filled out.
As quickly as we took a seat a waitress brought us a food selection. My sibling bought Sundubu Jjigae (Soft Tofu Stew 순두부찌개) as she prepared however I still could not choose what to purchase. My sibling after that included that an additional of Maru’s specializeds is “residence made pork cutlet (Tonkatsu)”. Additionally it was a couple of days after the black day (14 th April) and also I missed out on having my Korean black bean noodles after that. So I was figured out to have something black too. So below, I got Dolsot Jjajang Tonkatsu (Pork cutlet on rice in a warm rock pot with black bean sauce, 돌솥 짜장 돈까스). I recognize fairly a lengthy summary, right? (However I really did not reach take a photo of the food selection since the steward took it away while I was checking out the girls space). Anyhow, the lunch food selection is relatively moderately valued– mainly simply under AUD $10. (Additionally suggestions are elective in Australia and also individuals seldom tip below.)
The food got here relatively promptly. We waited much less than 10 mins.

My pork cutlet was fairly huge. It was extremely weighty and also tenderly prepared. I needed to provide some to my sibling as I could not consume everything. The top quality of the pork cutlet was absolutely far better than I can ever before make myself, a minimum of in the meantime. While the rice, pork cutlet and also black bean sauce mix developed fairly a fascinating blend recipe, I believe it required some more powerful flavour to rule down the a little dull total preference of the recipe. Yellow radish pickle probably? I likewise attempted my sibling’s stew and also it behaved however I believe my variation preferences much better. Haha … Though I need to confess, it was my very first time having soft tofu stew once more in 6-7 years, so I truly valued the flavour. (When I had not been blogging, I survived on mix deep-fried recipes with some monotonous veggies and also soy sauce.)
